something like this, and actual disaster. what was learned from katrina is that george w. bush got a lot of phones down for doing a flyover and for not going into louisiana. for acting like he could look at it from a distance. all politicians have learned from his mistakes. uc barack obama cancelling his campaign, going to new jersey, and meeting with chris christie, a republican. most people in the u.s. he has done a good job. he was talking with the army corps as engineers. in that regard, it has helped, getting all the face time on the television when you don't see much of mitt romney. >> it has been striking, hasn't it, to see him with the governor and listening to the two of them congratulate and thank each other in this campaign we have seen such bitter politics. to see a democrat and republican coming together like this. >> that is supposed to be the best of america, when there is a kind of bipartisan effort in a time of disaster. you see it exemplified by obama and christie today. this election is in a dead heat. polls give obama a slight edge. some of the other states are close.
suburbs. once upon a time affluent suburbs were solid republican territory, george h.w. bush in 1988 got big margins and carried states like michigan, ohio, california, in the four suburban counties outside philadelphia, he got 61% of the vote. zeroed out the democratic margin in the city of philadelphia. if you look at over the last 20 years, there's been a democratic trend in the affluent suburbs, and so president barack obama carried those four counties in pennsylvania with 57% of the vote if he carried the state. mitt romney grew up in bloomfield hills. >> a suburb of detroit. >> well, i grew up in the same area, went to the same high school so i'm quite familiar with it. he seems to be doing better. i if you look at the battleground poll -- the pew research poll where you have a big sample. so if you have a subsample you have some confidence the numbers are good. you see that romney, post-october 3rd debate, is carrying apparently statistically significant margins. people with incomes over over $75,000. barack obama carried them 15-49 in 2008. romney made bigger gains with the high
-organized campaigns that we've seen in recent memory was the 2004 george w. bush campaign. karl rove engineered a very impressive, microtargeting effort, where they started to integrate people's consumer preferences with their voting data to try to more precise -- so instead of just saying, ok, we're going to target everyone that we know is, say, a latino woman, you can actually individually start to target people based on what kind of car they drive, or what kind of cereal they eat, or all kinds of little factors that the people know from, you know, when you fill out surveys or when you buy things, that kind of thing. the obama campaign did that even more impressively in 2008, and they've been building on that ever since. so they've built a really formidable sort of digital, integrated data-targeting effort, that they then have put together with this vast network of field offices on the ground and neighborhood teams and volunteers and through facebook and everything else, so they know practically who all of their voters are, the millions and millions of people that they expect or hope they can drive
florida went for george w. bush by 537 votes? out of millions cast. >> i am. because you can't ever get that out of your head because it was just such a surprise. i can tell you, you know, it's not whether i hear them, it's whether both these campaigns hear them. one of the things i was listening to james baker the other day who of course was the lead lawyer for the then-candidate bush in 2000 who said, look, none of us ever expected this would happen. we weren't ready for a recount when it suddenly was obvious they needed one. both sides have lawyers that have been studying sometimes automatic recounts in some states. they've been looking at all the voter laws in these swing states just for the possibility that this could happen in ohio or colorado or florida or, you know, any of the -- virginia, any of those other swing states. >> you're seeing evidence in ohio, john, of a lot of lawyers getting ready to get involved if necessary. >> reporter: and let's hope it doesn't happen. but they're watching this through the early voting process. there are observers when you go to the early voti
to george w bush. george bush was the incumbent president with you they say ohio under reports how the candidate is doing and there is plenty of room for mitt romney's ground game to put him over-the-top in ohio and get him to the 270 needed tuesday night. bill: back in the same part of virginia where they have been for the last couple of months. the president is giving his closing argument and using colin powell to do that. what is tkpwoef governor romney's closing argument? >> the intervention of hurricane sandy interrupted his driver reas much as he wanted to. it boils on you to bold, real change. mr. obama having been reelected wasn't able to keep many of the promises that he made. many of the policies that he put forth as a candidate didn't work as president. he has been emphasizing his bayh partisanship as governor of massachusetts trying to get swing voters in this race. we have ten battleground states that mitt romney plans to visit between now and tuesday night. he'll include in them pennsylvania and wisconsin, states that had been considered in the obama column that he no
term of george w. bush. would you agree with that line of attack has not worked? >> not only do i not agree with that line of aattack. look at conversations we're having. listen to what voters tell us. look at ohio where the fact mitt romney was against the auto bailout, that mitt romney writes an article and says let detroit go interrupt, that's a severely conservative position. the fact mitt romney said he wanted to see roe vs. wade overternove overturned, that's a seriously conservative position. the fact that is they're severely conservative and far away from where the majority of the american people are. it's very important in this campaign that people understand their choices. >> bill clinton, obviously, very important to shore up the base. let's talk about the impact of hurricane sandy. do you agree that it could hurt the democrats more? that the obama campaign has depended so much on the ground game, and if that gets disrupted in some of these key states, it would be a disadvantage more to the president than it would be to romney "nightly newmitt romn? >> i will say the ob
. host: tell me about new jersey's the you on the presidential election. caller: george w. bush -- i worked with him from 2000 to to 2005. i changed to be an independent. and then i changed. but now obama -- he has too many good things going for him. he made some serious mistakes. but he has too many good things going for him. i will vote for him. if i can vote. our electionsx editorial and the "oklahoman." for the last 10 minutes we are focusing on voters and non- battleground states. i want to point out a facebook post from ed -- i live in the non-battleground state of massachusetts. it will be my great pleasure on tuesday to cast a vote from deep within the balls of this hardly misguided state for romney-ryan and scott brown. cannot pull that lever soon or hard enough. we will go to a blue state. california on of the independent line. sam, go ahead. caller: yes, this is a referendum on the spiritual life of this country. this country claims to be christian, mormons do not believe that jesus was born from god, but that mary was impregnated by a man. mormons believe that the christ
has made progress and a vote for governor romney is a vote for president george w. bush's policies. >> governor romney has been using all his talents as a salesman to dress up these very same policies that failed our country so badly. the very same policies we have been cleaning up after for the past four years. >> the candidates continue to sprint to the. election officials are insuring americans can the next week even with power outages in the contest and key swing state of ohio. the secretary of state office tells fox business all polling place is currently have power for early voting and the state anticipates a smooth election day. dennis: rich edson. cheryl: on the topic of election day five days from the election ap has filed the catawba campaign donors. for president obama more than three million each from chicago media group founder and hedge fund manager and hollywood film producer. recognize mr. katzenberg. for governor romney the numbers are much higher led by sheldon adelson and $44 million followed by founder of conglomerate and head of huge real-estate empire. those a
a violater is china? we're mad at them for protectionist policies, but george w. bush put limits on products, but we allow the currency to get weak? >> yeah, well, china's run the largest program of manufacturing subsidies in the world, and they are not compliant with the world trade organization obligations. it's been encouraging property piracy matters. the international trade commission in 2009 said china's ip violations cost businesses $48 billion, and if china enforced intellectual property laws, american businesses would have employed 923,000 more americans in the united states. china has been the subject of the wto complaints, and it's lost all of them. clearly, we have a big issue with them. dennis: okay. someone to combat them, and i have not heard much from either side. thank you for being with us donald chang and donald gross. >> thank you. >> debate this, labors, unions, collective bargaining, brett mcmahon of miller and long destruction, and bill dyne author of "state of the unions" here at noon eastern. cheryl: live at reagan airport in washington, d.c. where they are trying to

with representatives from the administration of george h.w. bush to the current administration of barack obama, our guest speakers today offered their expertise and experience as they look back on their years of service and look forward to the future of u.s.-asia relations. we offer my gratitude to georgetown's asian studies program, our school foreign service and the korea economic institute who have partnered to bring together some of our country's most respected minds on foreign policy and asia. we are deeply grateful to dr. dr. victor cha and director of asian studies here at georgetown. dean carol lancaster dean of the foreign service and dr. abraham kim, the interim president of the korea economic institute her make in this event possible. we are also unsure what this representative of education and we think the department for its recognition of version studies program as title vi national resource center for east asia. it is fitting that we gather today for this conversation just days before the presidential election. the topic of our discussion will take on increasing importance for our pre
? >> the changing demographics in columbus, obama won it convincingly in 2008, and george w. bush won it in 2004 with a strong showing in the southeast. it looks as if the romney forces have secured the base in the southeast and going up in the western part of the state and same for president obama in the northeast, and so it is a battle for the center part of the state and 19 counties that make up their part of the state and it is all about the ground game. gretchen, let me say real quick. in 1976, jimmie carter won ohio by 11,200 odd votes and less than one vote for precinct. in 2004 bush won 118,000 and we would have a president carry. that is how close it is right now. >> gretchen: that's how important one vote will be. thank you for your time. >> good to be with you, gretchen. >> gretchen: top lawmakers stepped up questions on who knew what on benghazi. judge napolitano on that next. massive chunk of atlantic city famed boardwalk simply washed away in the storm. we'll have that next. [ female announcer ] you can make macaroni & cheese without freshly-made pasta. you could also cut corners b
it is compared with 2004 when george w. bush won the state. you can see that president bush won more of the tidewater region than did john mccain in 2008. if you were president obama and you were mitt romney, where would you focus your resources, larry? guest: you can tell by where they are visiting. romney spends a lot of time in the richmond area. he needs a big vote out of those localities, some of which voted for president obama. other various conservative localities like chesterfield county went as high as 45% for president obama in 2008. there's no way for republicans to win statewide and allow centreville to get 45% of the votes to obama. they're both campaigning in northern virginia. it is the linchpin of a statewide victory for president obama. he needs to do well in the big, growing burgeoning prince george county and loudoun county, as well as fairfax. yes, the two areas are small, but trees and rocks and acres don't vote, at least in most states and localities. host: what kind of the voting system is used in virginia? guest: the computerized systems are used almost everyw
reaches its apex, president george w. bush not out campaigning for mitt romney. but rather speaking at an investment conference in the cayman islands. organizers declined comment. tickets, $4,000 apiece. >> oh, my goodness. >> sir richard branson said to be there as well. >> there you go. "the charleston daily mail." west virginia still feeling impacts of sandy in the form of snow. in some counties, 80% of residents have no power. and in places three feet of snow cover the ground. this must be just unbelievable. forest crews and fema have been working around the clock with chain saws to carve up fallen trees but more are falling under wet, heavy snow. >> "the washington post," the ipad mini goes on sale. apple expects to sell 1 million this weekend. put that in perspective, apple sold 5 million units of the iphone 5 in september. almost two inches smaller than the full-size version, but 330 bucks more expensive than competitors' model. >> 200 in the first day just to halperin. >> halperin. he hoards apple products. he's a hoarder. >> you never know. >> mika, we should point out one
, george w. bush got a lot of criticism katrina, doing a heck after job brownie, the idea it appeared everything was going along smoothly. we learned days after the fact that there were bodies being discovered and great discord, and bad communication, help wasn't getting readily available and power outages were much more than we were told. and this idea where they're slapping each other on the back and commending themselves for a great job it's going to come back and bite their hineys. >> i think you're right about being a sleeper issue and why the president has been at fema this morning when he's gotday. quickly yesterday on our program we took a look at monthly unemployment number and it actually notched up one tick to almost 8% it's at 7.9%, is it too late for this to impact the election? >> i think it was kind of stating the obvious, if the number been a lot worse than people were thinking or better than people were thinking maybe it would have moved the meter a little bit. i don't know if this one does, i think essentially what we're looking at is, you know, flat employment throu
